Good Fonts

Postby humblejohnny20 » Sat Apr 30, 2011 5:34 am

What are some good fonts to use with gimp/photoshop nowadays - reluctantly I've gone back to photoshop temporarily.

(target:web design/general assorted design)?

I lost my large collection ages ago, so I need to rebuild with the latest trends.

A few that I remember using years ago:


-Avenir (my favorite, i think)

-Helvetica Neue (or something like that)

-Arial Rounded (for a generic rounded font)

-Frutiger

-Gotham

-Akzidenz Grotesk (or something like that) - cool old typeface which was originally created in the 1800's

-Futura

-Bank Gothic (only for using sparingly - way overused)

My favorite is "Sawasdee", an ubuntu native ... it's slim and elegant but yet usable for nearly everything.
